About Us


We specialize in family fun!

Leisure Times is a family owned and operated business that began providing the Effingham area with pools and spas in 1982. Since then, owners Dennis, Nancy, and Chris Kreke have expanded Leisure Times to include fireplaces, billiards tables, grills, patios, and firepits. This family owned business prides itself on providing outstanding service.

Leisure Times is located at 1205 W. Jefferson in Effingham. With over 9,000 square feet of showroom space, it is easy to find the perfect fit for your family. As Chris Kreke has said,” if it involves leisure and family then we can be part of it.”

Gas Grill

I was shopping for a new gas grill and they have an extensive selection. Chris was very knowledgeable and helpful. Just have to decide on which one I want.
